Caroline laughs and it's raining all day

I'm showing my age with this one :)

This is my entry in the pink journal in the Colours circle journal that I've recently joined.

Pink is very much NOT my colour, but I do like the Psychedelic Furs song, off of the 80s, called Pretty In Pink, so that was my inspiration here.

In the song, Caroline is a bit of a tragic figure, so this rather bedraggled looking Stampotique girl seemed perfect.

I've pretty much used every bit of pink stash I could find on this layout....I didn't have much....like I said, it's not really my colour!

But the DCWV Rock Star stack came to the rescue, along with some ancient Christina Cole papers, and some lovely Urban Bling sparkly "P"s :)  I also found pink micro beads and seed beads, pink wire, and some pink gem brads.  So they all went into the mix :)

I couldn't resist adding a smattering of black too, I was aiming more for emo girl than girly girl.

Hopefully the book's originator Emma will like my rare attempt at pink :)

It's definitely more of an edgy pink with that Rockstar paper than a girlie pink, love that Stampotique image.
